Navy and Cincinnati will meet for the third time overall and for the first time as American Athletic Conference members when they square off on Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps

Memorial Stadium (34,000). Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM and the presenting game day sponsor is American Armed Forces Mutual Aid Association. This will be the first meeting between the two schools since Oct. 20, 1956, when Navy defeated Cincinnati, 13-7, in Annapolis.

Navy has won 15 consecutive regular-season games played on its home field, Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, and the Mids are 9-0 in American Athletic Conference games at home during that stretch. Navy’s last regular-season loss at home was Sept. 27, 2014, when the Mids were upset by Western Kentucky, 36-27. The Mids’ last loss at home was to Temple, 34-10, in the AAC Championship game last December.

The March-On of the Brigade of Midshipmen begins at 3:11 PM.

The National Anthem will take place at 3:20 PM, followed by a flyby at the end of the National Anthem by two Sikorsky MH-60R helicopters from the “Airwolves” of HSM-40 based out of Naval Station Mayport in Mayport, Fla. Piloting the lead aircraft will be Lt. Cmdr. Ryan Miller, USNA Class of 2003, and Lt. Colin “POT” Looby, USNA Class of 2011 along with AWR2 Robert Flores. The wing aircraft will be piloted by Lt. Natalya “Winnie” Cooper and Lt. Robbie “Shawshank” King, both USNA Class of 2010, along with AWR1 Benjamin Latham. The Airwolves are responsible for training replacement air crew in the MH-60R. Once these students have completed their syllabus, they are assigned to squadrons based from Florida to Japan and actively deploy in support of U.S. Navy carrier strike groups and expeditionary forces.

There will be a parachute jumper from Team Fastrax at 3:24 PM

Kickoff on Saturday is slated for 3:32 PM. Please note, there is a chance kickoff and all activities noted above could be pushed back by five minutes if the first game on CBS Sports Network (Army at Tulane) is running long. That decision will be made before the 60-minute clock starts at 2:32 PM.


  • Saturday’s game will be televised nationally by CBS Sports Network with John Sadak, Randy Cross and Sheehan Stanwick-Burch on the call.
  • The Navy Football Tailgate Show on WNAV 1430 AM / 99.9 FM will air at 1:30 PM.
